MFA Graduating Exhibition 2017

09 September 2017 – 23 September 2017, 12:00pm
Audain Gallery, SFU Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 West Hastings Street, Vancouver BC

Binding, Breathing, Incorporating

This exhibition features the work of three graduating MFA candidates at Simon Fraser University’s School for the Contemporary Arts: asmaa al-issa, Dave Biddle, and Patrick Blenkarn. Instead of presenting their works under a unifying theme, the three artists are exhibiting their respective projects within the shared space of the gallery, autonomously.

The exhibition of a graduating project represents the culmination of a candidate’s studies, and is presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Fine Arts.

Presented with the School for the Contemporary Arts at SFU.


Opening Reception
Friday, September 8, 2017, 7pm
Audain Gallery

Audain Gallery is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday, 12-5pm and Thursday, Friday, 12 - 8pm.

Please join us for Linnea Gwiazda's MFA Graduating Project, in several times.

I walk over the river my Grandmother crossed as she left her home for the last time. The bridge has been rebuilt since then but the crossing remains. I revisit the bedroom of my childhood home, with all of my imagined worlds still held within its corners. I imprint raspberries from my old backyard on my skin in permanent ink, follow the winding trail over a hilltop only seen in photographs, and pace through hallways of mirrored walls. My feet lead me along familiar shores, my arms remembering the pattern of the climb to my treehouse, the sound of cicadas ringing in my ears, the smell of sautéing mushrooms in the evening air.

Tickets available online here.

in several times is a choreography of space, memory, and the body, created with and performed by Marc Arboleda, Kayla DeVos, Gordon Havelaar, Mahaila Patterson O’Brien, and Charlotte Priest, with sound design and composition by Matthew Ariaratnam. Through movement, sound, and the senses, in several times investigates the body’s relationship to memory and space – spaces we’ve been and spaces we have yet to be, spaces we recall and spaces remembered through stories. Memory invisible and memory felt – memories that shape us, that hold our bodies, that our bodies remember, that remember us.

Presented by the School for the Contemporary Arts at SFU.
